Situated in the ever popular residential area Harnham, (which lies on the southern side of the cathedral city of Salisbury), 119 Harnham Road is an impressive, semi-detached, Victorian house which has been in the same occupation for over 30 years. This in itself is testament to the amount of well proportioned, versatile living accommodation and good atmosphere within. All of the rooms are of good proportions with impressive ceiling heights and there are numerous period features remaining such as picture rails, original plasterwork, deep skirting boards and some sash windows. Our clients have maintained the property well during their time there and the property is ideally located for ready access to the city centre and also for walks along Harnham Slope and through the countryside beyond.

Within Harnham itself, there is a good range of day to day facilities including a post office with convenience store, two hotels with restaurants, tennis courts, a primary school and several churches, clubs and societies. There is a pleasant walk through the world-famous Cathedral Close to the centre of the city which hosts a good range of educational, leisure, cultural and shopping facilities and also has the mainline station with London Waterloo (journey time approximately 90 minutes). Salisbury also supports a well thought of playhouse and twice weekly charter market and there are regular bus services from Harnham to both the city centre and nearby Salisbury District Hospital. The house is also walking distance of the hospital, Cathedral and various schools.

The house is approached either from Folkestone Road or from the Harnham Road via steps which lead up to the sheltered front door. This is part glazed and opens into the:
